Creation Station – Sheltering Tree

creation station header

Hello! It’s been a while since we have had a Creation Station Blog Tour but we are back! This time around we are featuring the Sheltering Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration! If you are following the tour you have arrived here from the talented Deborah Smart’s blog. I have two projects for you today, a one layer card and another card with a little watercoloring! Let’s get to them!

My first card is a the one layer card. I took a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and used the stencil from the Hooray it’s Your Day Project Kit and a Sponge Dauber with some Daffodil Delight Ink to create my sunburst. All of the images and greeting are from the Sheltering Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set. My tree and greeting are stamped in Soft Suede and the leaves and ground are stamped in Mossy Meadow. I mounted it to a Whisper White card base with some SNAIL. That’s it! A nice simple card that you could make it a few minutes! We need some of those from time to time, wouldn’t you agree?!

Creation Station Tour 16 - Card 2-WM

My second card uses the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper. I used one of the pieces and some Garden Green Ink with one of my Ranger Mini Ink Blending tools to create the background. I inked the entire piece and then took a slightly damp paper towel to wipe off the ink from the embossed part of the paper. That is mounted to a piece of Blackberry Bliss that is then adhered to a base of Whisper White. The flower is from the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Watercolor Paper. I used the Blackberry Bliss Ink and watercolored the image and then cut it out with my Paper Snips. A few Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. The hello is from the Hooray it’s Your Day Project Kit, I used my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers to color it and then some Multi-Purpose Glue adheres it to the card. When I look at this card I think of Spring and it can’t get here fast enough!

  1. Great cards Justin. Love the Sheltering Trees one with the SUN! Missing it terribly, haven’t been about to get out in weeks. I guess that is what winter is. Your Dahlia is exquisite. The water coloring is beautiful and then to cut it out. Great card. Enjoy your Sunday.

    1. Thank you Nancy! I like that stencil a lot! Yes, winter is all about hibernation! I’m so happy that you enjoyed the cards! I had a nice Sunday and hope that you did too! 🙂

  2. Justin, Great cards!! Love the way you used the sun stencil on the tree card. Can’t wait till the trees have leaves and the sun is shining on them….lol. Such a happy card.

    1. Thank you Gerri! I have been waiting to get that stencil, love it! I too am looking so forward to the spring! 🙂

  3. Oh Happy Sunday! It’s 49 degrees right now. We were out on our deck in shirt sleeves yesterday, but this weather isn’t slated to last long. Of course not! It’s February. I just love what you did with the kit stencil. I am excitedly awaiting mine so I can case your card. Have a great day and a happy Monday…Nancy B

    1. That sounds like a very happy Sunday indeed! Enjoy it while you can! Love that stencil! Happy Monday to you too! 🙂

  4. Hi Justin:
    You really did an amazing job coloring and snipping out that Dahlia. You have more patience than I have! LOL
    I love your “Thinking of You” card. More often than we think it turns out that less is more and the brightness of the tree really stands out against the softness of the sun’s rays. Just a beautiful card for sure.

    I’m not sure how you managed to get two posts in for the same day when you have been so busy but I’m glad you did. It sounds like yesterday was a lot of fun for you. We had more snow last night and are expecting even more tonight through Wednesday morning. Sounds like a good night for me to make some chicken soup. LOL Have a fabulous day my friend. Hugs XO 🙂

    1. Hey Grace!
      I do love a little fussy cutting and the watercoloring is a nice and easy way to color an image! I do enjoy a single layer card every once in a while! Glad that you like them both!
      I’m actually not sure how I got them both done either! LOL! I did have a nice day on Saturday and Sunday was good too! I am over all the snow! Hope that your chicken soup went well! Hug to you too! XO 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Linda! I’m glad that we are back too! They are a very talented group! 🙂

  5. What a fantastic idea for the ray of sunshine behind the tree…a perfectly simple card! Same goes with the second one. Love the simplistic look, but you can definitely see the wow factor in both the background paper and the coloring of the flower. Great techniques to share!
